A 20km circumnavigation of Rabbit Island. Rabbit Island got hammered by Cyclone Fehi and I was interested in seeing the damage from the sea before Cyclone Gita hits next week. The cycleway along the Tasman bay side of Rabbit Island was smashed with large  sections undermined. Plenty of shoreline erosion with pine stumps now sitting in the tide and the trees closest to the coast drying from salt water inundation. I started a few hours prior to high tide to take advantage of the incoming tide into the estuary and waited for the tide to turn before exiting into the ocean at Mapua.
